While Kangana Ranaut’s film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi is currently faring well at the box office, the National Award winning actress however isn’t happy with Bollywood and Alia Bhatt in particular. The 31-year-old recently grabbed headlines when filmmaker Krish, in an explosive interview, said that he shot the 70% of the period war drama but it was Kangana who took away the credit as a director of the film. This obviously didn’t go down well with Ms Ranaut and she addressed the controversy a few days back at an event and vouched to expose everyone who had ganged up on her. At the event, Kangana also mentioned how she had attended the screening of Raazi and Secret Superstar but when it came to Manikarnika, nobody from the industry came out to support her film.

Alia Bhatt, who is currently busy promoting her film Gully Boy, was asked to react on the same at a press meet and the actress said, “I hope she doesn’t dislike me and I don’t think she dislikes me. I don’t think I have done anything intentionally to upset her. If I have, I will apologize to her on a personal level.” But it seems Kangana wasn’t satisfied with Alia’s reply and therefore while talking to an entertainment portal, the Fashion actress reiterated saying, “I reached out to Alia Bhatt and asked her what makes her think Manikarnika is my personal controversy, it’s a film whole nation is talking about and wondering why Bollywood is keeping quiet on such a relevant work…I asked her if I can be courteous and gracious to acknowledge her requests for encouraging relevant work that she does, why is she so scared to see my film.”

Kangana further added, “I suggested that she grows some spine and supports an important film about woman empowerment and nationalism…if she doesn’t have a voice of her own and her existence is all about being Karan Johar’s  puppet then I don’t consider her successful…I told her if she is only focusing on earning bucks and not raise a voice, then her success has no value…hope she understands the true meaning of success and her responsibilities, Nepotism gang life is simply restricted to give and take favours…hope she rises above that.”

Now we wonder what Alia has to say about Kangana’s latest comments. Will the Gully Boy heroine react and drag the controversy further? Or is this the end of Kangana-Alia’s cat fight? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!

The entire team of Batla House met Vice President Venkaiah Naidu on Saturday evening to apprise him about Batla House and show him some portions of the film.  After the meeting the Vice President wrote on Twitter, “They explained to me that the motivation for the film was to uncover the truth of the incident that took place 11 years ago in the Batla House area in Delhi. My best wishes to the entire team.”

It is being reported that John Abraham plays the police officer who was martyred in the encounter. But knowing how Bollywood functions, it is very likely that a lot of creative liberties will be taken. On the other hand, two of the accused in the case have complained in court against the film’s release. The Batla House encounter was questioned and even labelled as a fake encounter by various political parties like Bahujan Samaj Party and Samajwadi Party.

In the controversial encounter two alleged terrorists from Indian Mujhahideen were killed. The Batla house encounter happened a week after five serial blasts on September 13, 2008 that killed over 30 people and left over 100 injured. According to reports, Yasin Bhatkal, the alleged chief of IM had fled Batla House before the encounter took place. For more Bollywood news and updates, stay tuned to CineBlitz.

Actor Ali Fazal is currently neck deep in work and has been shooting long hours in Benaras for the second season of his hit Amazon Prime Video show Mirzapur. He will soon kick off the promotions of his next film Prasthanam with Sanjay Dutt. Ali was up for rude shock on social media on August 1 when he found a song of his film Tadka doing the rounds on fan clubs.

Months after the Taapsee Pannu and Ali Fazal starrer Tadka directed by Prakash Raj ran into legal debacle, Zee Music (the music wing of Zee Studios) was seen uploading a song from the film on their official YouTube channel (7 days ago) and even tweeting the same from their official handle. The film is a remake of the Malayalam hit Salt N’ Pepper, has run into legal trouble over the IP rights of the venture. The film also stars Nana Patekar, Shriya Saran, in key roles.

Ali was quick to turn to Twitter to call out the producers for their ethical breach. He tweeted, “There’s a court case on the producers of this film as far as I remember. Cheques had bounced. Actors and crew still haven’t gotten paid. Surprised to see a promotional song coming out from the film.”

A source informs, “Ali was utterly displeased with the rampant flouting of court rules which evidently had kept the film on hold. Additionally, he saw the incident as a breach of ethical conduct on part of the producers who are yet to clear payments for cast and crew but are willing to flaunt their film on social media. Not the one to stay mum on issues close to his heart, he put his version out there to make his stand on the matter clear and show his solidarity with the aggrieved cast and crew.” For more Bollywood news and updates, stay tuned to CineBlitz.
